View from Victoria Street Car Park

Two small watercolours; grey
wash under yellow.

Pigeons light and depart
from a concrete ledge while
inside a casement, a canary perches.
Feathers flame in shadow.

Sunlight falls on
the bare chested man
performing tai chi on his terrace.
Light streams from the harbour
over the docks, Rangitoto.
White crane spreads wing.
